That obstinate phoenix of the ballet world is back again with his Mandance Project, as Kisselgoff reports in the Times:

“Whatever Eliot Feld is eating for breakfast these days, it more than works. He is a choreographer renewed, refreshed and (why not?) reborn. Mandance Project, his new chamber dance group, which made its debut on Thursday night at the Joyce Theater with six striking premieres, is a showcase for Mr. Feld’s best works in years. Ranging from urban cool to universal mystery, they resonate with originality.

Extraordinary is a word difficult to avoid for most of the dances and the performers. The New York City Ballet star Damian Woetzel and the bass clarinetist Evan Ziporyn engage in a witty dialogue that enhances the singular blend of majesty and lightness in Mr. Woetzel’s dancing. Sean Suozzi, a younger guest from City Ballet, turns a gimmicky play with flashlights on his palms into a deep meditative solo.”
